Love him . Saw him here in San Juan Capistrano in the 80'sat the Coach House. The metal roof sounded with the extra percussion of rain . This was when Sun Ra was in his "Duke Ellington from Mars" period . I think there were more people in the band than in the crowd. He was suppose to play 90min, he played 2 and a half hours . At one point after playing this way "out there" piano solo that went straight into a full blown straight ahead version or "Mac the Knife". EVERY ONE was dancing. This was one of the best musical events I have ever been at !
"Space is the Place" is lots of fun ! Should appeal to fans of 70's Blaxploitation, besides fans of far out music .
He was one of a kind .
